I would like to be the first person in my immediate family to go to college and earn a degree. I would be a good candidate for your team because I love the game, and the life long friendships made while playing. I will work hard to become a better player, teammate, and student, and won't expect any special treatment. I believe what makes me different than other recruits is that I have reasonable expectations of what I can offer to a team and what a team can offer to me. I am not too good to play any position that is offered to me, and view everything as an opportunity and not a setback. I understand academics are just as, or more important than sports, and my character on and off the field defines who I am, more than the athletic achievements that I accomplish.
